Why look at tax-reform as a zero-sum issue?

Those claiming the financial growth from tax-reform as not enough to ‘pay for’ tax cuts should be required to answer several very relevant questions…

  • why aren’t spending-cuts ever thought of as part of the solution?
  • why ignore the possible continuing legislative process as part of the solution?

Spending has been out of control for a long time, but those who oppose tax-cuts never think the need to rein in spending is part of the answer. And they always object as if there’s no possibility of further legislation that can tweak tax codes along the way.

They treat any solution Republicans advance as zero-sum losing propositions by low-balling revenue benefits (intentionally) and ignoring spending-cut alternatives completely, which is a  deliberate dishonesty FakeNews media helps them perpetuate.
